- Don’t leave out the sour cream, but you can substitute greek yogurt.
- Do NOT overmix! When adding the dry ingredients to the wet ones, just fold it over a few times so your cake will be light and tender.
- If you store it in an airtight container, it will last on the counter for about 2 days and in the fridge for about a week.
- Grease your pan thoroughly and dust it with flour.
- Make sure a toothpick comes out clean, different ovens and different pans cook differently.
- Pumpkin pie filling is different than pumpkin puree, make sure you get the right one.
- Any kind of nuts are great for this cake. Toast them in a skillet until you can start to smell them, then add them to the batter or streusel topping for an extra treat.
- Always use room temperature eggs in baking for best results.
- A pat of butter on top of a piece of warm cake is divine!
